The Media Office of former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has advised Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State to leave the former governor and focus on efficient governance.

In a statement, yesterday, the Head, Abubakar Bukola Saraki Media Office, Abuja, Yusuph Olaniyonu, alleged that the governor was displaying inferiority complex, hence he would always talk about Saraki, who served out his terms as Kwara governor nearly two decades ago.

The statement reads: “The Media Office of Abubakar Bukola Saraki noted the ‘long essay’ written by Rafiu Ajakaye, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, which was drifting with the name of Saraki from the headline to the last sentence. Ordinarily, one would ignore the piece as another diversionary gimmick being employed by a governor and a government now reputed for failure to deliver on the numerous promises made to the people during elections.

“However, we consider it important to let the governor and his spin doctors know that the people have seen through their deception and, thus, they should direct their efforts towards delivering good governance to the good people of Kwara.”

Asserting that Saraki can never be governor again, the media aide wondered why the governor and his government talk about him every time.

“The Kwara governor should also know that 2023 will be a referendum on whether the promises he made to the people have been fulfilled. The election will not be about how many times he abused Saraki and what he did to antagonise the Saraki family.

“Also, the next election will not be based on empty sentiments; it will be about serious issues, a clear referendum on the performance of the incumbent and how to make Kwara greater,” the media office stated.

It chided Abdulrazaq and his aides for thinking that the governor could get re-elected only by attacking Saraki and using his name to divert attention from the many inadequacies of the present administration.
